Like all the most famous cultural icons, there's no shortage of urban myths and apocryphal tales surrounding Mick and co. Fleetwood Mac: Don't Stop gives each of Fleetwood, Christine and John McVie, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham the chance to tell it their way.

The "epic tale of love and confrontation, of success and loss", is essential viewing for all Fleetwood Mac completists, general music enthusiasts and will make a fan of anybody discovering the band for the first time. It's somehow still staggering that they made some of their most adored tracks to a backdrop of in-fighting and evaporating relationships. But then thunder only happens when it's raining.

First broadcast back in 2009, the level of interest and intrigue around the Mac has only greatened, with Rumours (geddit?) of grand reformations and Glastonbury headline sets never ceasing to swirl. Since Christine's sad passing late last year, those possibilities now seem further away than ever. But we still won't stop thinking about tomorrow...

Fleetwood Mac: Don't Stop streams on BBC iPlayer from 9.30pm BST on Saturday, 21st October – the only place in the world you can stream the documentary. Make sure you know how to watch Don't Stop from anywhere.
